    There was a time after Hurricane Katrina, when New Orleans, LA needed nurses. We now have a glut and I really feel bad for those new nurses that cannot find a job in NO. Just two years ago, some hospitals were offering big sign on bonuses but now we have more nurses then we have jobs. In a few years Charity Hospital will be rebuilt or replaced (the debate is still on) and the LSU system will be finished adding on to the interim hospital and there will be jobs. Just a FYI to those who have "heard" that there are jobs in New Orleans; there are no jobs right now. However, in Lafayette and Monroe LA they are still begging for nurses. Good luck:smiletea2:

    I recently got my CNA because I want to go into nursing eventually, and I enjoy working with the elderly.

    However, I see far too many people feeling from corporate jobs into healthcare right now, just because they can't get hired in the business world right now (recession going on). This is all wrong. Some of these people lack compassion and are simply in this for the money. They dislike their patients - are even rude to their patients. And they carry the corporate mentality with them into healthcare, and it just doesn't jive very well, corporate ethics and healthcare ethics are two different things. In healthcare, the bottom line is patient health and well being. In corporate America, bottom line is money and profits. I would like to urge these people to get out of healthcare, they just don't belong

    You have obviously never been to a hospital being run as a proper business. You're living a fantasy non-reflective of the real world.
